If you enjoyed Dracula, then you are going to like Frankenstein. The same formula of going back to the original story, and not holding any punches with the suspense another sure fire hit for Rod Pike and CRL. I can't recommend it too highly.
It's not all good news though, as the vocabulary is rather limited and the text display a bit on the boring side, both due to Rod using a commercially available adventure writing system, that proves that although these systems can really do the business when they're used properly, they cant beat a well coded original parser system from an experienced programmer. That apart, this is a first class adventure that should be bought for the class of scripting alone.

Rod Pike, who wrote Dracula, is a man with a linking for chunky descriptions and this latest game also shows a considerable improvement in the quality of the puzzles.
Die Rätsel sind eine wahre Frechheit. Das Programm verschweigt die wichtigsten Informationen (beispielsweise die Lage der Ausgänge in bestimmten Räumen), um so die Puzzles schwieriger zu machen. Ich möchte aber nicht ausschließen, daß das an der Unfähigkeit des Programmierers liegt. Mich hat es beim Spielen echt gegruselt - aber nicht wegen der beängstigenden Handlung, sondern wegen der rundum dilettantischen Umsetzung. Einer der absoluten Tiefpunkte der Adventure-Geschichte.
